Mountain View Preparatory Elementary School will graduate to a new site next year.

After being shuttered for a year, the Tavasci Elementary School campus will once again swarm with children for the 2012-2013 school year. The Cottonwood-Oak Creek School District Governing Board finalized the decision to move the Mountain View Preparatory students to the Tavasci campus at the March 6 board meeting.The school is ready to move from its home at the Dr. Daniel Bright Elementary School campus due to capacity enrollment and a substantial waiting list. It will move to the site of the former Tavasci Elementary School for the 2012-2013 school year.

Mountain View, based on the international baccalaureate program, currently serves nearly 200 students, with another 100 on the waiting list.

“It’s been a big success,” Cottonwood-Oak Creek School District Superintendent Barbara U’Ren said. “It struck a chord with the community.”
